Why Our World Needs Montessori

Why Our World Needs Montessori

The Montessori method follows several different values and techniques for creating helpful and successful members of the community. Our Lycee Montessori school is eager to help children be selfless individuals of society. This is quite the opposite of the views of the world around us today where many individuals center their lives around themselves. Continue reading on to learn why our world needs Montessori.

What is the Montessori Method?

To begin, the educators and teachers at our facility respect the children. In turn, the children are born with a deep natural love of always learning. These two principles of respect and a desire to learn can be played out at home or at a school. Children learn the best when they are participating and using their hands. We use a variety of tools, including music, art, beads, and cards to help children of all ages learn. The children know to clean up after themselves and keep their learning area tidy.

If you are interested in Montessori for your children, then see if the values below are important for your child:

  • be vibrantly inquisitive about new things
  • enjoy the process of learning
  • acquire fine motor skills
  • develop an analytical mind
  • work independently
  • work without disrupting others
  • work well with others
  • be able to focus his/her mind on the task at hand
  • respect others
  • respect his/her own mind and abilities
  • feel purposeful and valuable
  • derive satisfaction from achievements
  • become an independent, confident adult

What makes Montessori different than public school?

At a Montessori school, the child is the focus rather than the teacher. Each child sets their own unique learning pace, rather than a strict learning timeline. The classrooms are not set up with desks and table for students and the teacher. Instead, it is filled with different learning tools that interest and grasp the children’s attention.
